14 New Songs Out Today
So many artists, so many songs, so little time. Each week we review a handful of new albums (of all genres), round up even more new music that we'd call "indie," and talk about what metal is coming out. We post music news, track premieres, and more all day. We update a playlist weekly of some of our current favorite tracks. Here's a daily roundup with a bunch of interesting, newly released songs in one place.

WOLF ALICE - "IN THE BLEAK MIDWINTER"
Originally released in 2021 as an Apple Music exclusive, Wolf Alice have now shared their rendition of Christina Rossetti and Gustav Holst's seasonal poem on all streaming platforms. "We have always thought ‘In the Bleak Midwinter’ was a beautiful melody and we could kind of imagine it as some kind of melancholy pop song, so with that in mind we tried a version of it sometime last year which we thought you may as well have this year too, because you can never have too many Christmas songs," the band say.
WAKE - "VAST AND INFINITE" (JESU REMIX)
Calgary's Wake have shared this remix of their song "Vast and Infinite" which was done by Jesu (aka Justin Broadrick of Godflesh). “‘Vast And Infinite‘ came from a dark place somewhere between Covid isolation, change and a great feeling of reflection," says Wake guitarist Rob LaChance. "Justin‘s remix sounds as a continuation of all three but through a darker register.”

Sun foot is the trio of Chris Johanson (visual artist, The Deep Throats, Tina Age 13), Brian Mumford (Dragging an Ox through Water, Jackie-O Motherfucker, Deep Fried Boogie Band, Jewelry Rash), and the late Ron Burns (Smog, Hot Spit Dancers, Swell) who died while the band were making their debut album.

"With Erykah, it can be convincing because she has her own narrative through her life and she has a castle – she’s living in her own kingdom. She has nothing to do with the hype or the viral[ity] and the noise, but everybody knows her and respects her."
